A student of the Bauhaus school, Herbert Hirche was a mainstay of German design, particularly between the 50s and 70s, which was also the period when the H57 lounge chair was created.

Specifically, it hit the market in 1957, with the chair initially created for the Interbau Berlin fair in 1956. Mixing influences of his past and of the era it was designed in, the minimalistic chair has a wonderfully curved fibreglass shell that's padded for comfort, with those skinny angled legs made of steel.

This Richard Lampert reissue is available with fabric, suede or leather finishes (the latter with chrome legs), prices starting at £1,687.
